She has been in this business for several years and it is doing very well thanks to her hard work. Lidia needs this loan to buy supplies such as flour, sugar, honey and many other products. Lidia is a member of Asociación Arariwa's “Hijas D. María” (Daughters of María) community bank in Cusco, Peru. The community bank is in its third year and is working very well for all its members.
